I kept my nose to the grindstone to finish all my goals. I'm tired but they are all done! Yes, every single one! Want to see?
Make 1 more quilt✔️ I made, quilted and bound the last of the Happy Quilts.
Finish quilting 3 quilts✔️
Add pieces (steps, windows and roofs) to the landscape quilt. Added some steps, a tree, and a roof. Needs more.
Pick next main project ✔️I'll be working on a new quilt
I did 3 bindings in a row -- all 3 of the happy block quilts. I used the leftover backing for the binding. It was a surprising stiff fabric even after initial washing. I shouldn't be surprised that might needle bent. I had some pretty thick sections to go over while I was binding.
As I was stitching down the second side of the binding on the third quilt, I started to worry I would run out of thread. I have no more and the Mettler Silk Finish I like isn't available locally. Never fear, I didn't run out.
It looks like it was a close thing but in reality it wasn't. I had a half-full bobbin I could have used some from it if I ran out. Oh, BTW -- it was a brand new spool when I started the first of the 3 happy block quilts.
So what's up for this week? I'm planning on a little down time. Read a book, maybe make a batch of cookies. There are a few things I'd like to make progress on though.
Finish labeling quilts and mail
Add some more details to landscape quilt
Quilt customer’s quilt
Read a book
Start looking for fabrics for a baby quilt
You might have noticed I don't plan on going wild sewing this coming week. I'm going to take it easier. I also need to do some cleaning in the studio. I might even finish a book or two.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
